Didn't I make a previous post about that? Older 64's had a 5 pin DIN;
later they went to 8 pin DIN but the 5 pin plug just happens to fit the
8 pin; same pinout works on either one. At least it does on my machines.

Hey we all learned about them when commodore was still alive and making
money off of us without providing "user support".

I feel about calculus the same as you feel about the 64, but that
doesn't make me understand what's going on.
